Missionaries of St. Therese

Missionaries of St. Therese
The Missionaries of St. Therese, founded in New Orleans on July 15, 1945, and originally known as the "Missionary Rose Petals of St. Therese", has as its purpose to offer spiritual and financial assistance to the missionary work of the Church.
• The "Missionaries of St. Therese" is under the auspices of the Pontifical Mission Society of Saint Peter Apostle.
• It enables Catholics to live out more fully their baptismal commitment to make the message of Christ known "to the ends of the earth". (Acts 1:8) 
• Members commit themselves to daily prayer for the missionary work of Christ through the Church. 
• It assists developing countries in providing resources for native clergy, and for women/men religious. 
• It aids needy parishes in the Archdiocese of New Orleans, which are considered missionary and it enables them to develop more adequate religious education programs.
The program is organized into "Circles" each of which is led by a Secretary. Monthly meetings are held and activities are coordinated by the Circle. Each member shares in the prayers and Masses offered by missionaries, seminarians and novices throughout the world and by the Archdiocesan Director of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

► Help Answer Their Call-
Vocations to the priesthood and Religious life are growing in the Developing World. The typical mission seminarian is from a poor family. The seminarian's family contributes the little it can; his bishop is hard-pressed for funds; the people this young man will serve once ordained a priest are also often struggling merely to survive.
The Society of St. Peter Apostle is the instrument of the Holy Father, the bishops and all in the Church to provide spiritual and financial assistance to seminarians of the Developing World.
A year’s help for a mission seminarian is $700. Maybe you could send that amount, or something toward it. Perhaps you could offer a week’s support of $35 — that $5 a day. Whatever amount you can send will be treasured.
